Here is the compelling tale of a spirited young Thoroughbred that captured the hearts of readers throughout Victorian England when it was first published in 1877. This masterfully illustrated classic is skillfully adapted by Newbery Award-winning author Robin McKinley and remains faithful to the original. With simple text to read aloud to young children, it’s little wonder that The Boston Globe says it is “certain to quicken the hearts of young horse lovers.” A timeless tale of courage, hope, and strength guaranteed to delight a new generation of readers.
Anna Sewell was born in 1820 in Norfolk, England. Her only book, Black Beauty: The Autobiography of a Horse, was published in 1877. Sewell died in 1878.
